The pilot for the oven lights fine, but neither pilot for the stove top will light. There is a brief flash on both when flame is applied, as if there is some gas getting to the pilot. I have tried adjusting the valve but no help.
I have used a needle to clear the pilots as well as vacuuming.

Hot point has 2 pilot lights on top... light them... then go to oven and light that one... it is a safety feature... no pilot on top kills the pilot in the stove. .. since gas is heavier then air the company made sure if there was a gas leak on top that it would not be caught by oven and blow up.
Probably the safety valve. This unit broils and bakes off the same gas burner. A spark ignitor lights the pilot and this save gas because no standing pilot is needed. It takes a few minutes for the thermocouple bimetal combo to release the gas. When the temp gets to the desired rate then the bulb on the oven control closes off the flow of gas. To recap: The flow of gas comes from a regulator along a rail which supplys the gas to the top burners and the oven control. older models had pilot light tubing going down to the oven and to the top burners. This newer style uses a spark module to light off the top burners and the oven. So when yall turn the the oven on the spark ignitor lights the pilot first and then after the mercury bulf thermocouple heats up the bimetal inside the valve opens allowing gas to flow out to the pilot and ignite the gas burner. the temp rises and the mercury bulb oven control expands closing off the flow but not the gas safety valve. I would suspect the safety valve on this one.
The spark should light the pilot automatically. If you open the broiler door and look up at the left rear side of the burner, you should see the pilot assembly and the spark igniter. Try lighting the pilot by hand with a match, right where the spark is. If it lights, the oven should come on. If it doesn't light, there may be a blockage in the pilot assembly, like a spider web or something. If the pilot seems too small, it may set for LP and you are on Natural gas. The adjustment for that is behind the oven knob, a screw. Good luck.
hi not sure but if your oven is activated like the gas hobs? ie electronic spark? not actual flame pilot thentry this ? turn gas dial to start? or the rq'd temp setting? then push/press the dial inwards whilst you press the ignitor button for hob ? rather like the operation start up of mobile valor gas heaters??
thats very easy first unplug the stove lift the top it should stay up with the arms extended,pull the arms out of the slot and remove oven top , gently pull knobs off , remove all hidden screws behind knobs, remove the front panel held in place by 2-3 screws on top and under panel, remove 2 screws holding existing thermostat unplug 2 wire thermost follow capillary to sensing bulb which is inside the oven unless it broke off it should be there, im asuming thats why you are replacing it ,remove sensing bulb from 2 brackets holding it in place make sure its perfectly straight because it has to pass through a small hole, installaton is the opposite of removal good luck.
